EA SPORTS FC CELEBRATES THE MEMORY OF GIANLUCA VIALLI

EA SPORTS FC honours Gianluca Vialli, the famous Italian footballer and coach who sadly passed away earlier this year, announcing that he will be immortalized in-game as an FC 24 Hero. 

Sportsmanship, determination, courage, positivity, and resilience are some of the many qualities Gianluca Vialli was lovingly known for. In agreement with Vialli’s family, EA SPORTS FC will celebrate his legacy through  a series of initiatives delivered in collaboration with his former club Juventus FC. In partnership with Marvel Entertainment, Vialli has also been illustrated in a design inspired by Marvel Super Heroes immortalising him, as a legend of the game and an example and role model to follow.

Vialli was a beacon of both character and quality, a striker that struck joy into all who had the fortune of watching him play. His trademark charm and trophy cabinet were equally memorable — La Leggenda smiled his way to an iconic UEFA Champions League title with Juventus, winning the hearts of all Turin and all who tuned in to watch their triumph. A record-setting goal scorer, a proud representative of Italy on the international stage, and a charismatic leader, Vialli was truly a Hero and truly a joy to watch.

In addition to his in-game inclusion, EA SPORTS will unveil a grassroots football project in honour of Gianluca Vialli this Autumn via the EA SPORTS FC FUTURES program, a plan to meaningfully invest in community-level football on a global scale with the purpose of growing the game for all.
